Sponging with lukewarm water, about 70°F (21.1°C), may help reduce a fever. Cold water may increase the fever as it can trigger chills. Medicines such as acetaminophen are helpful in fighting a fever and chills. DO NOT bundle up in blankets if you have a high temperature.
Also asked, should I stay warm or cold with a fever?
Stay comfortably cool There's no evidence that layering on blankets “and trying to sweat out the fever” has any benefit, Dr. Ferrer says. Instead, you'll probably feel better if you stay cool, he says. One way to beat the heat is to take a lukewarm or cool shower or bath at a temperature that's comfortable to you.
Also, can I eat Popsicles with a fever?
Ice Chips/Popsicles This is a perfect way to cool down your kids. Most kids with a fever have little or no appetite. Give them a cup of ice chips or a nice cool Popsicle. This will get them something in their belly and be nice and refreshing.
Does a fever breaking mean you're getting better?
When the fever breaks, the thermostat gets set back to 98.6. That's when you start to sweat, throw off the covers, and hopefully begin to feel better.
